Hi all My quail are just under 3 months old. I have 4 females, 1 male. I got button quail for their cuteness factor, colour and eggs. (silvers and ivory) I fell in love with Japanese quail eggs, but didn't have the space for a bigger run for them. It is summer here, and daylight savings so the sun doesn't set till about 9pm. (i recently moved them back onto the lawn so they're happily scratching and digging around) My questions are: When do they start laying? How can I make sure that they are eating their oyster shell? I had bought them some grit from the pet store but they don't seem to like eating it. I thought maybe it was too big, but they're about the same size as their crumble. Also, do many people eat Button quail eggs? I want to give them insects to eat to increase their protein intake etc, but read that at this age they can't eat dried mealworms is this a thing? Thanks - Kelly.
